Remain Curious (but take a nap every once in a while)

The two morning dives were awesome, but the first dive it got a little cold (to 79 degrees).  We found lots and lots of things.

A guy named Dennis from Germany switched from his boat to ours.  He comes to Indonesia a lot and likes to take lots of photos.  However, he doesn't name his subjects nor does he edit or do much to them before he goes home.  

I read by the pool after the third dive and then took a nap.  I didn’t wake up until after 8pm.  The staff tried to wake me twice I guess but I didn’t hear them.  Luckily dinner was still on, but I was really out of it.

I'm reading "Gulp.  Adventures on the Alimentary Canal" by Mary Roach.  She is a fun writer.  I found this book on the shelf here so I'm going to try to finish it before I leave and give it back.  I also have "Bonk" on my Kindle.  I think I like her stuff because she is curious.  That's part of my motto:
Remain curious, neutrally buoyant and remember to turn things over.

I know, worst picture ever.  It was at the end of the dive... I was almost out of air and I was fighting my new wetsuit.
